Blessings & Prayers for Pope Francis

The Lord preserve him and give him life,
and make him blessed upon the earth,
and may the peace of God which surpasses all
understanding keep his heart and mind
in the knowledge and love of God and of his Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
and the blessing of the loving God 
be upon him always.

Harry, it is our privilege to join you in prayer for the new Holy Father, Francis I. May he lead the Church with compassion and wisdom.

What a man he seems to be! And he even refused to wear the fancy fur-trimmed red mozetta that Benedict XVI wore over his white cassock on the first balcony appearance.

The Anglican bishop of Argentina wrote about the Pope: "He called me to have breakfast with him one morning and told me very clearly that the Ordinariate was quite unnecessary and that the Church needs us as Anglicans…"
